Stephen Van Eeden studied at the Elizabeth Galloway Academy of Fashion, graduating at the top of his class. That was only the beginning. After gaining invaluable industry experience, he fulfilled a lifelong dream of establishing and launching his own brand – one that specialises in luxurious resort wear, red carpet glamour and bespoke bridal. His design aesthetic is described as feminine, modern and glamorous. The launch coincided with his 30th birthday, on 6 July 2016, making it an even more significant milestone. Two years later, in 2018, Stephen proceeded to be one of the 12 finalist on the first season of Project Runway South Africa. While he grew up in a small town in the heart of the Northern Cape, he has matured into a citizen of the world who continues to cherish his African heritage.
